adnielsen (9013) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Bottle @ Uncle Chris’ house in Fürth. Clear, yellow appearance with a nice, fluffy white head. Tangy fruity, light green apple, grainy aroma that seems off. Fruity yeasty, pear/apple, light yeasty, straw aroma. Tastes and smells off- I’m afraid that I may have gotten an old bottle (too bad the bottle wasn’t dated).

MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Lightly toasted cereals and their sweetish undercurrents benefit from a rustic character before grassy hops take control of the aftertaste.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-There is barely a veil of foam atop the clear pale yellowish gold.
-While the body is quite lean, it never feels thin.
-A citrusy touch accompanies the wooden, grassy hop finish.
-The aroma gets better and better upon warming, showcasing more hay-like malt depth.
-This is obviously very drinkable; as their house blond lager, such personality in the flavor profile is commendable too.

Bottle.

Bottle, 5.0% at KØ10. Mild buttery aroma. Clear yellow colour. Small white head. The flavour is OK clean at first, but turns a little old-tasting, unfresh.
